 4 Things to Consider While Buying a Notebook Computer

 When you ask that which the best laptop available in the market is then there isn’t any clear cut and obvious answer to that question of yours. In fact, even when you have your budget earmarked, still there are numerous options available to choose from thus making the decision-making as tough as it can get.

Simply put, there is no such thing as the best company or the best features but there is a set of criteria which you can consider before splurging it all on the notebook (โน๊ตบุ๊ค, which is the term in Thai) computer of your choice. So, here are the things which you should ideally be looking out for.

1. Size:

Size is an important factor to consider while investing in a laptop. They fall broadly in the size range of 11.6 to 17.3 inches. Now, size isn’t a ROM for which there is an option to upgrade in the future. Here, you are basically stuck with what you buy, hence, factor in all the possibilities before making a decision.

In case you are specifically looking for a portable notebook machine, then 12.5 or 13.3 inches size is ideal. However, portable computers seldom carry high-end graphic cards supported by a 15.6-inch system. Hence, in case your requirement revolves around larger displays or advanced graphics, then you are better off with a bigger screen laptop only.

2. Central Processing Unit:

There is virtually no competition to the Intel processors when you are looking at hardcore multitasking and multimedia media support.

Core i3 processors are used in entry-level machines which are then followed by the i5 powering the intermediary level. Core i7 based systems are built to support high-level functionality. Some larger computers are also known to incorporate i9 processors to extract ultra-high level performances.

Choose a processor-based upon the kind of work you intend to do on your notebook computer.

3. Random Access Memory:

A not too long time back, even 4 GB RAM was more than enough to run the operations smoothly on the systems. However, under the prevalent circumstances, 8 GB is the bare minimum requirement for normal usage. If your power consumption is high, you’ll need 16 GB at least.

Gamers and graphic designers should look for 32 GB or above RAM in order to experience smooth operations.

4. Battery life:

Because of many variable factors applicable, (like Wi-Fi connectivity, screen brightness etc.) it is almost impossible to match the manufacturer quoted battery life.

Yet, if you are specifically looking for a long battery machine then the 44Wh – 50Wh ratings should give the best performance in an ultra-book.

Consider all these factors before making the ultimate choice.
